RAT SNAKE:  We often see this Mexican Rat Snake—or his relatives—around CSA.  He used to be conspecific with Great Plains Rat Snake, but recently was given full species status.  He’s a handsome, harmless fellow who helps out with rodent control.  Interestingly, there are virtually no rattlesnakes in the lower Valley;  there has never been a confirmed rattlesnake at Santa Ana NWR, nor are there any Water Moccasins or Copperheads.  We do have Texas Coral snakes, but they are very uncommon, sluggish, and small-mouthed.  You have to work pretty hard to get one to bite, nonetheless, some idiot succeeds every once in a long while.
